49ers signing WR Deontay Burnett to the practice squad, per report

Oct 15, 2019 at 2:33 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers are signing 22-year-old wide receiver Deontay Burnett to their practice squad, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, after working out several receivers on Tuesday. The move will likely become official on Wednesday.

Update: The 49ers officially announced the signing of Burnett on Wednesday. To make room on the practice squad, the team has released wide receiver Malik Henry.

Henry initially signed with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of West Georgia on May 3. He was waived on August 31 and signed to the team's practice squad the next day.

The Tennessee Titans signed Burnett as an undrafted free agent out of Southern California in 2018, but he was waived on September 1, 2018. Burnett joined the New York Jets practice squad and was promoted to the active roster on October 20, 2018.

The Jets waived the receiver on August 31.

Burnett appeared in five games, including one start, with the Jets, hauling in 10 passes for 143 yards.

"I know extensions for Mostert and Bourne have been discussed," Barrows wrote in this week's mailbag

There is no doubt that, based on his contributions toward the end of last season and in the playoffs, Raheem Mostert is grossly underpaid. That's why the San Francisco 49ers running back requested a pay raise this offseason, according to Josina Anderson. Mostert accepted a multi-year deal last offseason. Of course, that was long before his 29-carry, 220-yard, and four-touchdown performance against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game. The running back would like to rework the deal, per the report, as an acknowledgment of his increased

News broke on Wednesday that San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert has requested a trade after what his agent described as months of unproductive contract talks. Mostert is signed through the 2021 season but will earn a base salary of just $2.575 million this year.

Is it something completely unreasonable for the team's leading rusher and the player who led all running backs in yards-per-carry last season? It doesn't sound like it. RELATED:
